I thought he looked pretty darn good by the end of the season. I think you'll see more interceptions from him this year. He seemed to be developing that knack for the ball.

Quote:
MIAMI DOLPHINS: Byron Jones, CB
PFF grade in 2020: 63.6

What went wrong: Jones converted to a full-time outside corner in 2018 with the Cowboys and immediately starred as a lockdown defender. He produced one of the five highest coverage grades at outside corner in the 2018 and 2019 seasons combined, excelling when playing in press-man coverage. He allowed the fewest yards per coverage when in press-man among cornerbacks in that time span (0.66). After signing with Miami in 2020, the Dolphins' scheme was seemingly a perfect fit. His first year in South Beach wasn't up to the standards he set in Dallas, however, as an early-season injury kept him out a few games, and he had a handful of uncharacteristically poor performances. — PFF

Outlook for 2021: Jones signed a whopping five-year, $82.5 million contract with Miami last offseason to form one of the NFL's best cornerback tandems with Xavien Howard. A lack of offseason practices might explain Jones' performance in 2020, but with a full year in the Dolphins' system under his belt and Howard on the opposite side once again, there's little reason to believe Jones can't bounce back to form in 2021. If he does, opposing teams will be faced with the tough choice between attacking him or Howard, the NFL's leader in interceptions over the past three seasons. — Marcel Louis-Jacques
